Elimination communication. Wow, now is that not a fancy way of saying potty training?
I've been doing some reading about the whole diaper-free baby phenomenon and I'm a little intrigued. It's definitely a great way to reduce laundry (since we'll be using cloth diapers) and it seems like it would make the transition to full on potty-trained a lot simpler. The official Diaper Free Baby web site is pretty encouraging. They even acknowledge that you can take on this challenge with differing levels of commitment. I think once the baby can sit up (or maybe earlier with me holding the baby upright?) we'll go the route of the 'Occasional EC-ers.' If it seems successful and I'm not adding stress to my life by doing so, we'll give the Part-Time EC-ing a go!
For now, I'm just pretty darn excited about how cute our little $5 Baby Bjorn potty is. Thank you craigslist!
